<Miwa’s tips> ※Watch more on YouTube!

  • My soy meat was already slightly seasoned. if you taste it blend, feel free to add more salt and soy sauce before serving it.

  • If you are sensitive to heat, reduce the amount of gochujang paste and add more miso paste to your liking.

  • you can use any type of miso paste. I’m using yellow miso in the video.

  • you can use any type of vinegar.

<Storage time>
